Without offering great risks, the phenomenon has turned into a tourist attraction and has attracted a crowd of onlookers who approach at a distance considered safe to admire the beauty of the incandescent river that flows through the crater.

Despite being 30 kilometers away, its brightness can be seen even from the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik.

The Fagradalsfjall volcano was long asleep and its eruption should not interfere with flights in the country or endanger the nearest cities, on the Reykjanes peninsula, where it is located.

Its eruption occurred after the area recorded more than 50,000 small tremors in the previous three weeks. A few hours earlier, a magnitude 3.1 earthquake was identified 1.2 km from the volcano.

In 2010, the eruption of another Icelandic volcano, Eyjafjallajokull, disrupted air traffic across Europe.
